A collaborative project between Macphie of Glenverbie, food ingredients suppliers and manufacturers, and my research group has been highlighted by the Scottish Food and Drink Federation.
This research project has a remarkable character of knowledge transfer and is the founding stone for a larger implementation project in which the bakery industry will benefit thanks to our novel strategy to control and tailor structures.

This project was also showcased in their last Parliamentary reception (Scottish Parliament, Sept 2011). Richard Lochhead MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and the Environment, underlined in his keynote speech the importance of innovation and the benefits of partnerships in academia and industry.
